3Com Delivers On Secure Network Fabric Strategy With New Solutions For Next-Generation Data Centers

3Com Corporation (NASDAQ: COMS) today announced four new products and solutions from its TippingPoint and H3C portfolios to extend the Secure Network Fabric to next-generation data centers and virtual networks. The Secure Network Fabric integrates 3Com’s industry-leading TippingPoint ® intrusion prevention system (IPS) technology and H3C ® enterprise network and security solutions to reduce network security risks, management complexity and infrastructure costs in modern data centers. With centralized policy management across security and networking operations, 3Com’s Secure Network Fabric now reaches into virtualized data centers to ensure comprehensive security and help drive down the cost of application deployment for both physical and virtual environments while delivering a low total cost of ownership.

New Technologies and Business Requirements Drive the Evolution of Securing the Next-Generation Data Center

The risk to business continuity is increasing as the data center becomes the central, strategic location for shared resources and the most complex component of the IT environment. The adoption of new virtualization, cloud, Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), and Web technologies have changed traffic patterns and driven consolidation and the concentration of business-critical assets into fewer locations.

Until recently, the network perimeter was clearly defined and the routes into the network easy to protect. Today, business applications tunnel through or bypass perimeters, hackers exploit vulnerabilities in new Web applications, and mobile workers with smart phones open up multiple remote paths into corporate networks. This trend, coupled with the way people use technology, is reshaping the data center, placing new demands on network capacity and security, and undermining the effectiveness of traditional security methods.

Virtual environments must meet the same stringent network and security requirements as their physical counterparts. 3Com is responding to these emerging technologies and requirements with an extensive range of networking and security solutions to support and secure the migration to a virtualized data center. As key components of the 3Com Secure Network Fabric, the H3C and TippingPoint solutions help organizations mitigate risks to business continuity by protecting network connected devices and defending critical entry and isolation points against ever-evolving global security threats.
